Opportunity for trades companies to pitch for QLDC business
Media advisory - Opportunity for trades companies to pitch for QLDC business
Electricians, plumbers and other local trades staff have the opportunity to become preferred suppliers to the Queenstown Lakes District Council in the latest round of tendering for professional services.
Last year the Council began inviting requests for proposals to provide professional services ranging from legal and town planning to engineering and website development, to ensure it was getting quality service at a competitive price.
Trade services are the latest areas to be offered. Commercial Manager Myles Lind said this included electricians, plumbers, tilers, painters, handymen, people providing concreting and fencing services and those qualified to undertake building warrants of fitness.
The Council has some existing contracts and agreements with suppliers for trade services on certain facilities and venues, and these are not included in the request for proposal.
“We’re inviting local firms to put forward proposals for providing services to the Council, across a wide range of skills. The companies who are accepted as our preferred suppliers will have some certainty about work, and we will have some certainty about the availability of qualified trades staff and the price we will be paying.”
The request for proposals will be advertised on the Government Electronic Tenders website and the Council’s own website on 28 February.
